Goofs

In one sequence where a jet car is making a run, every close up of the driver clearly shows an open parachute behind the car. Wide shots of the run show no parachute. When the car gets in trouble and becomes airborne, an actor in the viewing stand yells "open the chute!". At this point the car hits the ground and is demolished, but the chute has never opened.

Stop Re-Writing History
8 September 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I found it fascinating to see, that in the international duel for the first man to exceed Mach 2, it was the tea drinking, useless Brits who were the first to crash out.

Re-wind 5 years from the film's making (2002), back to reality and October 15th 1997, when British RAF pilot Andy Green drove, the British designed and built, Thrust SSC to Mach 1.015 on Black Rock Desert. He still remains the only man to officially break the sound barrier on land.

At the same time as Thrust SSC's desert testing, Craig Breedlove was in the same desert attempting to break the sound barrier in 'Spirit of America' but had to limp home after his ill handling, underpowered car fell over at the end of a high speed run.

The film 'Landspeed' does not reflect this reality in any way, and insults a great British achievement, in this definitive display of bad sportsmanship. If America wants to bask in the glory of great achievements, it should achieve them, not rely on Hollywood to alter people's perception and ultimately re-write history.

As for WW2 films such as U571, this is extremely insulting, as Hollywood completely undermines the British and allied navy forces who risked their lives to capture the entact Enigma machine, so that we could defend our merchant navy from the 'wolfpacks' and prevent Britain from starving.
